By now, you can file this under "News, stale" but if you were wondering why the Bruins had a five-day layoff last week, here you go:

The Garden was unavailable, as it was booked for Monday's Celtics-Clippers game, NCAA basketball happenings on Wednesday and Thursday, and Friday's Jonas Brothers concert.
